Voluntary State of Apart

Voluntary State of Apart
by Saquina Karla C. Guiam

It’s you and me,
            talking about things
            so beautiful
            I cry
            in the heart
            of this Sahara.

Hold me,
            I borrowed
            the edge of summer
to remember
            I will reach for you.
